    Hi
    The only option I can get when I enter the set up utility ( and then rating) is the level of parental control on desplayed DVDs.I can change between 1,2,3 by submitting a 4 digit password.I can not proceed anywere from this point. .There`s no such an option as MISC SETUP.Please explain me again step by step how to do a factory reset.Regards - Jankon

    Hi (again)
    There`s no such a option as Misc Setting.Maybe we`re talking about different dvd players.Mine is CL-20 by California Audio Labs.This is what I have done trying to access the settings:
    1.With disc removed I pressed the SETUP button on remote
    2.There appeared a SETUP menu on a tv screen with 6 choices:rating,audio,subtitle, tv screen, osd display,menu language.
    There`s no Misc Setting in any of them nor in main Setup.Please tell me what have I done wrong?Regards - Jankon

    Thanks for Your suggestions.It seems problem is with my CL-20.It still doesn`t play DAD layer on multiformat DVD.

HI,

Just select settings and you can get ratings by pressing the UP arrow, till you get.

Once you get rating, you can change the rating and if it asks for password

If you forget your password, please usethe universal password 0000 to unlock.

And try to do a factory reset. by choosing MISC SETUP and load factory defaults

This should enable your CAL-20 to play all DVDs

    You have the lst option in the menu, which is called Misc Setting, and from that you can choose Factor reset to default setting, It is the bottom last item in the menu..

Hi there,

it could be that your lens has lost its ability to read dvd discs but retains the abaility to read the audio cd you used. If this is the case (and a cleaning disc doesn't help) then I am afraid that the service centre was correct in its assumption.

Hope this helps.

Hello Patricia -

Please follow the instructions below for unlocking your Philips HTS3011


1. Switch on the DVD player
2. OPEN the disc tray
3. Key 9 9 9 9 0 using the Philips remote control supplied with the DVD player
4. Press PLAY. The disc tray will close.
5. Switch the player OFF then switch ON again.
6. To test, play a disc from a region which was previously locked.

If it does not work the first time, switch the player off and back on, then try again.

This is a verified unlock method, but I was unable to confirm whether it works for players sold locked to Region 1 (North America). If you have a Region 1 player and the method above does not work, you will not be able to unlock your player.

Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.

BElectric

DVD problem


It could be a couple things...
#1. Over time, dust and deposits can accumulate on the laser that reads the disc. In many cases, DVD players with this problem can still read CDs. You could try a DVD laser cleaner, which is usually a disc that has a tiny brush glued onto it. Run the cleaning disc 2 or 3 times, and try it again. Try both CDs and DVDs, since CDs are easier to read than a DVD.
2. After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its ability to read DVDs. In many cases, DVD players with this problem will still be able to read a CD. I'd try a cleaning disc first, since the only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center for repair.
Let me know what happens after you get the DVD laser cleaner and run it. Hope this helps.

Samsung portable dvd player


those kinda players wont play DVD rom disks and certain ones that are made up. DVD-RAM or ROM wont work. Try blowing inside the player for any dust. if it still doesnt work its the maufacters problem. The player will play CD-G audio only, not graphics The ability to play back DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-Jpeg discs may depend on recording conditions.
